The water and agricultural empire of Stewart and Lynda Resnick
On this edition of Your Call’s One Planet Series, we’ll discuss water in California. Award winning journalist Marx Arax has written a lengthy piece in the California Sunday Magazine about Stewart Resnick, one of most powerful farmers in the US, and the largest single water user in the Western United States.
Resnick and his wife own Pom Wonderful pomegranate juice, Wonderful pistachios and almonds, and Halo mandarins. How much of California's water do they control? And in the midst of a five-year drought, where does their water source come from?
